An installation script for installing MS Word 2007 on Linux with PlayOnLinux

See The Microsoft Office 2007 page for Play On Linux for more details.

To use this script, open play on linux 4.2.12, Tools/Run a local script and select msoffice.sh from this folder.

It should:

  • Install MS Office 2007 also on Ubuntu 18.04 (which the original official version doesn't).
  • Install .desktop files that integrate with the installed applications list and right-click/properties so e.g. .doc(x) files can be opened with MS Word without too much hassle.
  • Copy in the required fonts for word, so that smilies and bullet lists work out of the box.
